Executive Chef Bill Minkert has a passion for life. He loves people and he loves food. Combining the two is what makes him the happiest. When he is in the kitchen, his tools are an extension of his hands. He describes his spatula and spoons as giving him super human abilities, as a sorcerer would make his magic. In the kitchen, he has the ability to perfect his craft. He loves to share it with his patrons. Whether they are with him for an hour, or for two, he hopes to make an impact on their lives He is pictured here with Juan Castro, his Sous Chef. Chef Minkert says that he is able to do what he does best because of the skills and abilities of Mr. Castro. Make sure you request to meet the chef when you dine.
